    Hot stock tip: invest in companies producing anti-smog surgical masks. That is, if you buy into Chris Cuomo’s environmental alarmism. On CNN this morning, the panel discussed the Trump admin’s announcement yesterday that it plans to roll back some of the Obama-era EPA regs viewed as overly restrictive on the coal industry. Cuomo claimed that the Obama regs are “seen as key to keeping the United States from looking like Shanghai in terms of blowing all kinds of black smoke into the air.” View the video here.

    In an apparent contravention of the laws of space and time, MSNBC and CNN managed to interview the same guest at the same time "live" Wednesday evening. Beginning at 7:05 p.m. Eastern, MSNBC's Chris Matthews began interviewing Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier (Calif.). But somehow CNN's Kate Bolduan began to interview the San Francisco Democrat two minutes later, while she was still being interviewed by Matthews. {..snip..}

    CNN ^ | March 24, 2017 | Tami Luhby
    Minutes after House Republicans shelved their bill that was supposed to save the nation's health care, Trump repeated that Obamacare was on the verge of collapse. "Bad things are going to happen to Obamacare," said Trump, calling out the large premium increases and insurer defections that plagued the exchanges this year. "There's not much you can do about it. It's not sustainable." While Trump is trying to shift the responsibility to the Democrats, it's his administration that will largely have to decide whether 20 million people who gained coverage under the sweeping 2010 health reform law will remain insured. It's...

    Patheos ^ | Mark Meckler
    The agenda machine at CNN has reached the bottom of the barrel in its critique of all things Donald Trump. When you spend two minutes of expensive air time to analyze the deeper meanings of Trump’s use of stairs, it might be time to reassess your credibility. On a recent New Day on CNN, an entire segment was devoted to conspiracy theories birthed by the British press and Vanity Fair that the president suffers from bathmophobia — the fear of ramps and stairs. Over a montage of videos showing a 70-year-old President Trump ascending and descending stairs carefully (as he...

    Since CNN’s middle name is “News,” viewers of the weekday morning New Day program expect to catch up on the latest headlines and watch in-depth investigations on the topics of the day. That wasn’t quite the case on Wednesday, when the final segment of the program was devoted to a “hard-hitting” report on whether President Donald Trump is afraid of stairs. The two-minute segment by Jeanne Moos, the network’s national correspondent, focused on several British newspapers that claim the GOP occupant of the White House has “bathmophobia,” the fear of stairs and slopes. “’ScareCase’ chortled one British paper back when...

    Washington (CNN)The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, US officials told CNN. This is partly what FBI Director James Comey was referring to when he made a bombshell announcement Monday before Congress that the FBI is investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russia, according to one source. The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings, according to those U.S. officials. The information is raising the suspicions...

    During the second break in day two of Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing Tuesday afternoon, CNN detected some wind in their sails as they swooned and congratulated their Democratic allies for supposedly giving the “testy” Gorsuch “a little bit more of a run for his money.” CNN found nothing to object to in the first break around lunchtime, so it was inevitable that they would concoct some sort of liberal spin to give Senate Democrats a boost.http://www.mrctv.org/videos/giddy-cnn-swoons-democrats-are-giving-testier-gorsuch-run-his-money CNN Supreme Court analyst Joan Biskupic could barely contain her enthusiasm, gleefully hyping that Gorsuch was “getting a little testier” and praised “Senators Durbin,...

The network was born in 1980 and gained viewers with live coverage of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster in 1986 and the rescue of baby Jessica McClure in 1987. In the 1980’s it was the only all news cable network in the world. But, CNN didn’t garner international attention until the 1990 Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and the subsequent US led Gulf War in the winter of 1991. CNN not only came to prominence during the Gulf War, they owned Gulf War news coverage. The first Persian...

    A CNN poll out this morning tests one of the fundamental tenets of the Trump and Bannon worldview in a very illuminating way. It finds that large majorities reject the basic idea that undocumented immigrants who have been in this country for a long time — and have not committed serious crimes — should nonetheless be subject to removal. It’s the latest sign of a larger trend as the narrative of President Trump and his top adviser, Stephen K. Bannon is getting translated into concrete policy. And Americans are recoiling from the results. The CNN poll finds that 58 percent...

As the panel discussed the cuts, Paris Dennard, a Trump supporter, pointed out that HBCUs, the acronym for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, were not included in the list of proposed cuts. But host Don Lemon found the HBCU argument to be less important than other social programs. “So a lot of people say HBCUs are important,” Lemon declared, “but there are a lot of people watching here...

    The Wall Street Journal columnist who called Hannity the "dumbest anchor" on Fox News is a "jackass," according to Hannity. The forensic psychologist who suggested a blood vessel had popped inside Hannity's brain is a "jackass." Even the conservative MSNBC host who sometimes criticizes President Donald Trump is a "jackass." If you criticize Hannity, or the Trump administration, there is a fair chance he will call you a "jackass" on Twitter. The chances of being called a "jackass" by Hannity are significantly higher late at night. Of the 21 people Hannity called a "jackass" in the last year, nearly half...

    One of the popular signs spotted at Tea Party protests across the country over the past year goes like this: "It doesn't matter what this sign says. You'll call it racism, anyway!" It's a pithy, perfect rejoinder to the fusillade of attacks that limited-government activists have weathered from their Democratic detractors and a hostile national media. Committed Alinsky-ites never let reality get in the way of a good Tea Party-bashing narrative. The radical acolytes of Chicago's late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky also understand the importance of manufacturing demons. "Before men can act," Alinsky preached, "an issue must be polarized.

Oh, and unlike the Jesus of a couple thousand years ago, JeZus is also a polytheist who worships Pele among other gods. The interesting thing about JeZus is that, despite his over the top theatrics, his global warming claims don't really sound much different than the standard...

Speaking at a media conference in Jerusalem, Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide, said Trump's labeling of the media as the enemy of the state was unfortunate and dangerous. He refused to say whether any CNN staff had been threatened and what kind...

    In a report Monday morning, CNN’s Brian Stelter took a shot at conservative radio host Mark Levin’s “incendiary idea” that started this whole wiretapping brouhaha. In it, Stelter accused Levin of “cherry-picking” stories that supported his conclusion and ignoring evidence against it. Here's my @CNN story about @marklevinshow's "incendiary idea" (a "silent coup") that prompted his open letter https://t.co/0HusCipjrh— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) March 6, 2017 Fmr Obama Secret Service agent Bongino shares info on Obama wiretaps – it’s about to ‘blow wide open’ What Stelter is referring to in the Tweet is Levin’s brutal counter-punch.

    All throughout the event, in which Bill Goldberg won the WWE Universal Championship from opponent Kevin Owens, a sign held by one of the fans close to the ring that read “CNN is fake news” was prominently featured in several camera shots. . . . But this sign was not taken from the fan, to the chagrin of many fans of the cable news network on social media.

    FBI Director James Comey was “incredulous” after President Trump claimed former President Barack Obama wiretapped him during the presidential race, according to a new report. Comey was concerned Trump’s allegations would make the FBI look bad, a person familiar with the matter told CNN Monday. “[Comey feels] institutionally he has to push back on this,” CNN’s source said, citing the magnitude of Trump’s accusations and Comey’s certainty they are untrue. It was reported over the weekend that the FBI had asked career personnel at the Department of Justice (DOJ) to publicly dismiss Trump's allegations, which so far has not happened....

    Monday morning on CNN’s New Day, hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota spoke with media correspondent Brian Stelter and analyst Bill Carter about Trump’s claims that he was wire-tapped by President Obama. The CNN panel took the opportunity to not just bash Trump but also blast the “illegitimate” and “partisan” right-wing sources where Trump gets his news. CNN painted with a broad brush, lumping in talk radio and several right-wing websites as illegitimate propaganda, simply because they weren’t “CNN or the New York Times.” The roundtable began with Cuomo asking Stelter about where Trump gets his information. “That’s the real...

    Footage has emerged of a heated row in the Oval Office on Friday that saw Donald Trump erupt into a 'ballistic' tirade against Steven Bannon and other senior advisors. The president reportedly unleashed his anger on Bannon and chief of staff Reince Priebus for failing to fight off the firestorm surrounding attorney general Jeff Sessions' recusal amid links to Russia. A furious Trump told Bannon and Priebus they weren't flying on Air Force One with him to Florida before reportedly storming out and heading down to Mar-a-Lago. While it is not clear what the discussion was about, Bannon was filmed...

    President Donald Trump on Saturday accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower in the latter stages of last year’s presidential campaign. A spokesman for Obama was quick to deny the accusations, while congressmen and women have vowed to get to the bottom of the accusations. Either way, it’s hard for anyone at this point to make a determination either way whether or not Trump’s accusations against Obama are true or full of hot air. However, that didn’t stop CNN on Saturday from fully declaring Obama’s innocence. Running a story about Trump’s claims Saturday, CNN declared: “Trump falsely accuses...
